THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ADAMS ELECTRIC!!

THANK YOU ADAMS ELECTRIC PENNY POWER GRANT COMMITTEE FOR OUR RECENT $500 AWARD!

We wrote a technology grant to purchase the Dot and Dash robots for our RAD Robotics group.  The Adams Electric Penny Power Grant Program graciously awarded us $500.  The Dot & Dash robots are coded by the kids via our Kindles, iPads or a smart phone using the Wonder and Blockly apps.  Dot & Dash can toss a ball, race each other, navigate an obstacle course, play a xylophone and even do light shows – all from computer coding by the kids.  These robots are geared for the 7-12 year age group.  Dot & Dash will be the focus of our next RAD Robotics Group Thursday, January 11 after early school dismissal from 11:30-2:00pm

REGISTRATION LIMITED TO THE FIRST 12 PARTICIPANTS – AGED 7-12
